Einstein was invited to speak at an important science conference.
On the way there, he said to his driver, “I’m sick of all these conferences. I always say the same things over and over!”
The driver agreed. “You’re right. As your driver, I attend all of them, and even though I don’t know anything about science, I could give the conference in your place.”
“That’s a great idea!” Einstein, said. You look like me, let’s switch places then!”
They swapped clothes and as soon as they arrived, the driver dressed as Einstein goes on stage and started giving the usual speech, while the real Einstein, dressed as the car driver, watched from the back of the room.
But in the crowd, there was one scientist who wanted to impress everyone and thought of a very difficult question to ask Einstein, hoping he wouldn’t be able to respond.
The woman stood up and asked her very difficult question.
The whole room went silent, holding their breath, waiting for the response.
The driver looked at the questioner, dead in the eye, and says : “Madam, your question is so easy to answer that I’m going to let my driver reply to it for me.”
